Private prosecutions

Private prosecutions

We investigate and prosecute the specialist area of online breaches of consumer law and trading standards.

Working in partnership with Price Investigations Ltd we offer a specialist service to investigate and prosecute online retailers who make misleading or unlawful retail website statements in their advertisements in breach of proper sales practices.

Section 6(1) of the Prosecution of Offences Act 1985 preserves the right of an individual or a company to bring private prosecutions. Using an independent law firm is almost always swifter, more efficient and more focussed than relying on the various prosecuting arms of Government and Local Government

We are not formally required to observe the Code for Crown Prosecutors but we undertake to do so to ensure that only the highest standards of investigation and prosecution are adhered to at all time and that the obligations of the Criminal Procedures and Investigations Act 1996 for disclosure are met at all times.

Please contact us to see how we can assist in this area of law.
